Gather in King George Square from 6.30pm on Friday the 29th of November 2013 for the much-loved annual tradition of the lighting of the Brisbane City Christmas Tree. Join Brisbane's Lord Mayor Graham Quirk, Santa and a host of special guests as they bring to life the Southern Hemisphere's largest solar powered Christmas Tree and the Queen Street Mall's all-new Christmas decorations.
Enjoy family-fun entertainment, including your favourite Christmas carols-culminating in the lighting of the tree at approximately 7pm. And the fun doesn't end there! The tree will shine its twinkly lights every night until Boxing Day, so make sure you pop by to catch a glimpse and a happy snap to treasure.
